WEEKEND UPDATE

Colin Jost to Replace Seth Meyers

We hope Colin Jost has his "really?!" ready. The head writer at Saturday Night Live will take the reins of Weekend Update when current anchor Seth Meyers heads to Late Night on February 1. The decision, finalized by Lorne Michaels, marks the third head writer in a row—after Tina Fey and Meyers—to win the enviable seat. Hired straight out of Harvard at the age of 22, Jost is one of the youngest writers to land a full time position on SNL.
